A guide to a hassle-free homebuilding experience

Imagine creating your dream home—a space that truly fits your lifestyle. With more functional space, indoor/outdoor living, and curated design, it brings joy to everyday living. Building a new home is an incredible opportunity, but the process can also be complex and overwhelming. In this blog, we’ll discuss the common pain points homeowners face during traditional homebuilding that can delay timelines, inflate costs, and add unnecessary stress—plus show how BUILD by TJH offers a smarter alternative.


Starting the process

You may have envisioned your dream home for years and now decided to take the next step. But as exciting as this prospect can be, a pain point for many is knowing where and how to begin. Our BUILD by TJH solution is designed to simplify the process from start to finish. From architecture and design to permits, engineering, and construction, BUILD provides a full-service approach that combines all stages of the build so you don’t have to.

One of the biggest hurdles homeowners often face when building a new home is financing. BUILD by TJH is designed to make the process simpler and hassle-free. We partner with trusted lenders who are experts in the build process and offer flexible financing options, like a single permanent loan. This means you won’t have to worry about the complexities of securing a home construction loan and rolling it into a mortgage. 

As construction progresses, we’ll submit monthly draw requests—known as the draw process—based on incurred costs so you can easily track disbursements. Additionally you don’t have to worry about making principal payments on your new home until construction and the final inspection are complete—leaving you more cash flow to invest in other aspects of creating the home you’ve always dreamt of.


Finding land to build

If you’ve decided to rebuild on your existing homesite, congratulations— you’re already one step ahead in the homebuilding process. However, if you’re looking to build a new home in a specific area, it can be challenging to find the right piece of land with the right price and location. Our land concierge services can help. Simply tell us where you want to live, and we’ll do the hard work of finding you an off-market property to build your dream home.

Managing contractors

Dealing with contractors can be a rollercoaster ride for homeowners. Finding trusted professionals who won’t cause delays, quit mid-project, or surprise you with unforeseen costs is a huge fear for many. Contractor horror stories are all too familiar and can understandably cause a lot of stress. Our BUILD program eliminates worry with our price and delivery guarantees. In addition to handling every step of the construction process, our size, scale, and consistency allow us to retain the top tradespeople to work on your home.



It can be frustrating to obtain building permits for a new home. It’s a process that requires time, patience, and a thorough understanding of local laws and building codes. Unfortunately, many homeowners find themselves bogged down in the paperwork, delays, and headaches associated with permits, which can lead to costly mistakes and unanticipated delays.

BUILD by TJH eliminates the headaches of the permit process by doing the legwork for you. We have extensive knowledge of the rules and regulations in the jurisdictions where we build, and we design our home plans to meet that criteria from the start. Our experience in working with different municipalities also helps us to streamline the approval process, minimizing back-and-forth changes. Let our team handle all necessary paperwork, liaising with the city and cutting through red tape for you. 


Design decision fatigue

The design phase is an exciting journey that can sometimes feel overwhelming. With so many choices to make, homeowners often experience decision fatigue. This is why we’ve simplified the design phase for you. Our expert team of professionals handles the decisions like lighting design, window placement, and cabinet heights, so that you can avoid the tedious process of selecting them. 

Instead, we offer foundational design collections per plan that are curated and customizable, ensuring your home reflects your style. Our in-house design team will work with you on personalized selections and upgrades, including paint and wall finishes, flooring, countertops, fixtures, and the details that matter most to you.

Inaccurate estimates

When starting a home build, you want the assurance that change orders and unexpected expenses won’t arise during the project. Unfortunately, it’s common for contractors to underestimate quotes to secure business, leading to surprise costs that exceed your budget. 

Another factor that can drive up costs is poor management of the construction schedule and supply chain, causing subcontractors to wait for materials or for a specific task to be completed before they can begin their work. Contractors often bill additional fees for these delays, especially if they had to forgo other projects to prioritize yours.

BUILD by TJH is different. The price of your new home is locked in and guaranteed at the contract stage, eliminating surprise costs down the line. Regardless of material price increases or unforeseen issues, you can trust that the final price will remain unchanged. 

Don’t let common pain points, challenges, and unwelcome surprises stand in the way of turning your dream home into a reality. With BUILD by TJH, experience a homebuilding process that replaces delays, budget overages, and stress with efficiency, transparency, and the dedicated attention of our team.
